What we DO know, however, is that the holder of the winning Mega Millions ticket bought in Baltimore County came forward today (Monday) to claim their share of a record $656 million jackpot, officials said.
Maryland Lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett didn’t identify the winner, who will share the largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.
Everett said the winner would like to remain anonymous, but the Maryland Lottery will share a “storyline” about the winner with the public during a news conference that’s been set for 8 a.m. EDT Tuesday morning.
The winning ticket was purchased at a 7-Eleven on Liberty Road in Milford Mill about four hours before the historic March 31 drawing.
It was one of three winning tickets sold nationwide. The other winners were located in Illinois and Kansas.
Each will take home more than $100 million after taxes.
We will, however, post more details on the “storyline” and the news conference right here at Blippitt.com tomorrow.
